Ueberschall releases Jazz Works Vol. 3 (Elastik soundbank)

Ueberschall

Ueberschall has just released the third installment of their Jazz Works Series.

Jazz Works Vol. 3 provides a collection of jazz tunes ready to be arranged into your own unique compositions. This third volume of the series focuses on more laid-back and late-night moods but spans a range of smooth jazz styles including Swing, Latin Jazz and Jazz Ballads. Ueberschall says the content could also easily cross-over into Pop, Lounge, Hip-Hop or LoFi productions. The Jazz Works Series includes acoustic and electric pianos, Jazz drums, upright bass, baritone and tenor saxophone, flute, flugelhorn, trumpet and extended Jazz guitar solos.

Ueberschall says:

Jazz Works Vol. 3 is an ideal choice if you want to create raw and authentic jazz, ready for your ideas. It is perfect for songwriters, music producers, or media composers looking to add totally authentic laid-back jazz tunes into their musical projects, whatever the genre.

As with the other volumes in the series, Vol. 3 is organized into 10 construction kits, with nearly 900 loops and phrases and over 9GB of sample content. Each of the construction kits offers collections of extended drum, bass and comping instruments (backings) plus multiple solo instruments. Kit tempos range between 60 and 120BPM. Performances feature extended 16 or 32 bar phrases for a genuine live feel with a length of up to one minute. However, Elastik's powerful sample manipulation toolset allows you to easily create shorter loops, change tempo, pitch, key or scale, as your musical project requires. The material has been recorded with top-class microphones and AD/DA converters and was not edited any further. 100% dynamics - no compression.

Within each construction kit, alongside the pre-mixed drum loops, some combination of individual loops of also provided. These include kick (inside and out mic), snare (top and bottom mic), hi-hat, cymbals toms, overheads and room, allowing for full control over the drum mix for your project. For the upright bass, a minimum of three different phrase/performance options are provided, with premixed, microphone and piezo recordings available in each case. The comping performances provide the core chord progression on acoustic piano, electric piano and electric guitar. Each kit includes a minimum of three variations of each instrument allowing the user flexibility in building a song-length arrangement. A PDF is included with full chord lead sheets for all the construction kits. All of the kits also provide a combination of multiple solo instruments. Up to 26 different solo parts are included within each kit. Throughout, the sound is pristine, authentic and presented without compression. This direct, dynamic, sound gives you full control over your mix decisions.
